I am researching the family name of ALTURA and am trying to find the
connection between Moses Marcus Altura and Israel Tobias Altura
(possibly Ostiller). This vital record of a birth certificate might
offer a clue. I would appreciate knowing all the names and places and
relationships listed on this record.

The record is listed on ViewMate at the following address ...

More about the film "The Apartment" #germany

Leonard Kranser <kranser@...>
 

The documentary discussed by several subscribers can be rented >from Netflix
under its English language title, "The Flat". The DVD describes how the
Israeli film maker did not plan to make a feature length movie about his
grandmother's friendship with Nazis but rather to make a short piece about
the emptying of her Tel Aviv flat after her death. In the process, he
discovered a fascinating history that he traced for about two years.

We rented it months ago and have recommended it to several friends, not just
for the analysis of how some Nazis befriended Jews but also as a realistic
look at how our worldly possessions are of little value to others.

Re: seeking NYC marriage certificate - online free ordering #general

I found out last month that one can also order marriage, death, and birth
records on familysearch.org - up to 5 records a month for free.
stevemorse.org has a search engine for IGG (Italian Genealogy Group) for New
York City area documents which will give the birth, death, or marriage
certificate number as well as the film roll and other information needed to
order the document. Haven't tried it yet, but I imagine other state information
can be gotten the same way through FamilySearch's site with the information
provided there. They say it takes 4-6 weeks but I got mine in 3-4 days. To
learn more go to:

Re: seeking NYC marriage certificate #general

From: Jennifer Mendelsohn jennifer@jenmen.com
From: ELIAS SAVADA <esavada@me.com>
Have you searched the city clerk records at the Municipal Archives on
Chambers St., NYC?
Jennifer replied ......
but I have had much success finding certificate numbers using....
http://stevemorse.org/vital/nymarriages.html
To be clear these are two different sets of records. One set (which is
the one that is indexed online) is >from the Health Department and that
is open and available at the Municipal Archives as well as online via
the LDS through 1937. This is what Jeniffer mentioned.

Eli referenced a different set of records which is those kept by the
City Clerk. It is separate >from the Health Department file and
sometimes contains overlap but also has records for people who only
filed at the Clerk's office.

The City Clerk file is not on line and can only be searched in person
at the Municipal Archives. It is in a different file cabinet on the
other side of the room. They have the index all the way up to 1950 but
the actual records also stop in the 1930s. It is a more difficult file
to work with because it is first sorted by year and then by borough and
then within the reels it is a handwritten listed by the first two
letters of the last name and it is grouped generally in two month
intervals. The combination of the handwriting and the dark
microfilm/machines make it a difficult index to read. The one nice
thing is it has both a bride and groom index so you can cross check
when you think you find someone. What you get >from the index is the
name, date and record number. Then you can see the record by looking
up that number on a separate set of reels and they will print copies at
the same $11 fee as the other records. If you find someone in the
index for the years after the Archives has the certificates you can
walk up the street to the Health Department office and make a request
with the certificate number you found in the index.

As I said some people only have files on the City Clerk records so it
is a good second source for New York City marriages. Most of the time
I have found if you get the Health Department certificate the City
Clerk file is basically a duplicate but occasionally people gave
different information between the two forms.

FW: Updates for the month of Julye, 2014 #bessarabia

Yefim Kogan
 

Dear researchers,

Here is an update for the month of July 2014 for Bessarabia SIG.
See the details at the "What's New" section of our site.

- New Section added: Yahad - In Unum.

Yahad - In Unum ("together" in Hebrew and Latin) is a Paris-based
organization established in 2004 by Father Patrick Desbois and dedicated to
systematically identifying and documenting the sites of Jewish mass
executions by Nazi mobile-killing units in Eastern Europe during World War
II. The objective of this work is to:
.Substantiate a "Holocaust by Bullets," in addition to those Jews murdered
in Nazi concentration camps
.Provide evidence of such mass executions to answer the Holocaust deniers of
today and tomorrow
.Give proper respect to the victims' burial places and enable their
preservation
.And disseminate and help apply the universal lessons about genocide derived
from the work of YIU.
See more information at our website.

I suggest to click on Go the Yahad - In Unum interactive map at the end of
the website to find out where in Moldova and other regions Yahad In-Unum
already went and conducted interviews. The partial interviews are already
available at the website (>from the interactive map).

Bessarabia SIG are working with Yahad - In Unum sending Holocaust
information to the organization, that helps to conduct interviews and choose
places in Bessarabia to go.


- Family Tree: Family of Peretz and Pearl Weinstein Tree.

- Genealogical Conferences: full texts of presentations were added for
Jewish Life in Bessarabia as it is Reflected in Bessarabian Newspapers,
1850-1930 by Alla Chastina, and Jewish Cemeteries in Bessarabia and
Moldova: History, Current state, Indexing, Photographing by Yefim Kogan.

Send your comments, suggestions, critique, new ideas, proposals of how to
make our Bessarabia group better.

Thank you all,
